Wright, and daughter, Mrs. Tobias Peters, and F.H. Dunning were with him at the end. His eldest son, J.C. Wright, who had been here to see him, had left in the afternoon for home, but was recalled by telegraph and returned this morning accompanied by the other son, T.A. Wright. The funeral will be held Saturday at 11 o’clock in the M.E. church, interment will take place at Mt. Vernon with Masonic honors, the deceased being an esteemed member of that organization.
